CASUC perfect breeder, recharges 46 cells per cycle, 1.83 eff

    In the planner there is one advanced heat dispenser. You need to replace that with a near-depleted uranium cell (or an isotope cell which will not be recharged) to generate 1 heat/tick. If you don't, the breeder will cool down slowly.
    Also notice there is no external heating or cooling.

    This is a CASUC breeder, designed to run at OVER NINE THOUSAND heat (HAYO!), which can easily be obtained by adding 5 lava buckets in place of one of the plates. No wait time is required between buckets as the hull is the only component which stores heat. Before adding any lava, ensure the reactor is on and ice is being supplied. This heat level is not high enough to damage entities.

    The reactor will use exactly one piece of ice per second. No external timer is needed to maintain this rate, as it can only use one piece per stack per reactor tick.

    The one downside of this design is that three of the depleted cells are adjacent to *two* uranium cells (this was needed to maintain heat). These cells must be replaced four times per cycle or the reactor will cool down, while the other cells must only be replaced twice per cycle.
    This variant adds two extra isotope cells, and nine more to keep the heat balanced instead (near-depleted cells can also be used for this), but allows all the cells to charge.

    PS. It's annoying when then simulator breaks.

    Disappointed with the bugs and nerfedness of AtomicStryker Corp's Advanced Machines, and the unupdatedness of Snyke's Enterprises?

    Note: UUM may stand for Unnerfed Unbuggy Updated Machines and may not be actual UUM. The extra U was lost due to a bit error.
    Battery snot included.

  • Nice setup

    I've switched my breeding to a CASUC setup a couple days ago too, note that my setup requires BC/IC crossover mod (Unless vanilla IC2 fixed attaching tubes to chambers since the last time i've checked) as it uses a 6 chamber setup.


    It enriches 48 cells in a cycle, with 6 uranium cells (max breeding efficiency) requires full external air cooling, 2 IHD + 6 cooling cells inside and exactly 1 ice per second.

    When i started it from cold state i preheated all the internal cooling to ~9000 then thrown the U and isotope cells inside and used a delayed start (30 seconds to reach 9000 minus 2 second ice travel latency for my setup) to get the temperature right.

    Oh yeah and if the heat goes above 10k your cooling will melt within ~30 seconds, followed by a crater if you fail to stop it within ~35 minutes - this shouldn't happen unless your ice supply is unstable or game is lagging.
